At the Bluebird, Deacon plays “Matchbox Blues.” Juliette is in the audience. Deacon announces that he’d like a talented friend come up for a duet; and while Juliette perks up, but he actually means Rayna, who had just walked in, unannounced and unseen by anyone except Deacon, who she’s here to support.
They perform “No One Will Ever Love You“ and the history between them is exposed, bare on the stage. Watty points out to Scarlett and Gunnar that that could be them one day. Which brings Scarlett to decide that she’s in – she’ll do the demo. As the crowd goes wild, Juliette storms out, affected by the chemistry between Rayna and Deacon.
After the show, Rayna and Deacon sit in silence in his truck, without an answer of what to do now, and with their raw feelings now rekindled. Rayna goes straight home to Teddy and hugs him and tells him she loves him, reassuring herself just as much.
